Cameron Parker is currently the Co-Founder and CEO of the motivational lifestyle brand ‘Hungry.Under.Dogs.’ Cameron is also working towards obtaining his degree in Business.
Going through school he never understood the importance of education. He always had the mentality that school wasn’t for him, and therefore didn’t show much interest. After graduating from secondary school, Cameron was unsure of what he wanted to do with his life, resulting in him getting involved in the wrong scene with the wrong people.
It was apparent that something needed to change. He decided to go to college as well as play American football for the first ever British American football academy. After working hard for two years there was a possibility an opportunity could arise, and Cameron could fulfil his dream of receiving a scholarship to go and play American football for a University in the USA.
Cameron turned around his education in college and achieved the best grades available to him despite discovering he had dyslexia and ADHD.
He received a place on the Great Britain American Football squad, however, he never got his scholarship to the states that he wanted so much, despite this being something he had put his blood, sweat, and tears into. Looking back now he describes not going to America as a “blessing in disguise” because he feels he has bigger and better dreams he is pursuing.
Cameron believes his poor GCSE’s were partially the reason he did not receive a scholarship to the United States. After his experience in college he finally values the importance of education, therefore he is trying to pass on his lessons to make sure the youth do not make the same mistakes as him. If there is one thing he is truly passionate about, it is helping and making a difference to people’s lives.
